Question about Shop Vac 584-06-00 Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum

1 Answer

ShopVac pump The waterhose connection is up high. The only way to get the water up to the level of the hose is to continually hold down the on button due to the automatic shut off after it fills to a certain level. On the bottom of the filter there is a hole. I am thinking there should be a small hose of some sort to put into that hole that would then lead up to the level of the water hose. Concept makes sense to me. But in the meantime, good old duct tape seems to have done the trick. Not exactly the right way to go about doing it but at least the water is out of my garage. Thanks so much for your help.

Shop vac is not pumping out water just fills the canister


The question makes perfect sense assuming we are talking about the ShopVacPumpVac. These devices are, essentially, a combination shop vac and sump pump. For those answering the question, you can see literature on these vacuum/sumps here: https://www.shopvac.com/includes/streamPDF.asp?loc=pdf&id=Shop-Vac-Pump-It-Out .

When I have experienced the loss of drainage, I have found a couple obvious problems and solutions.

First, make sure that the garden/discharge hose is not kinked at any point along the line from the vacuum to the outside. If kinked, the line will not drain.

Second, the baffle can become blocked or clogged. Take the following steps to determine if your baffle is clogged and to clear the clog:

1. Turn off and unplug the vacuum.
2. Unclip the two lid clips.
3. Lift the lid of the vacuum. When properly set up, the baffle hangs below the filter housing on an opaque hose about 1 foot in length.
4. Grasp that hose and pull firmly downward. Once removed, I take that hose and the attached baffle to an outside garden hose.
5. Pull the baffle off the opaque hose.
6. Spray water from your garden hose through the opaque hose to make sure it is clear.
7. Spray the baffle clear.
8. Lightly tap the port of the baffle, where the opaque hose has been inserted. Most of my clogs have been the result of hair balls (or worse) at this point. Just tap any blockage out and rinse.

Third, reattach the baffle to the opaque hose. Reattach the opaque hose and baffle to the motor under the filter housing. Set the vacuum top on the canister. Click the locking clamps closed.

If this doesn't result in clearing the clog and allowing it to drain, then you are in the exact spot I am right now. If I figure out this new problem, I will update further. But I have cleared this kind of clog maybe five times in the six months I've been using this new Shop Vac Sump Vac

When button is pressed, water does not come out of the holding canister. still seems to have suction, but water doesn't come out to rinse/clean carpet.


Please check the following with liquid in both tanks.


- Check to see if the machine will spray through the hose with the setting on tools. If it does, the pump is fine. Continue troubleshooting.

- Check for debris on spray tips. Clean them with a soft brush (on old tooth brush works well). The spray tips may be lifted out for easier access.

- Ensure the tank lid is properly attached to the bottom of the tank. To attach this properly, remove the Water Tank from the machine. Hook the front window onto the lip of the bottom container and then allow the window with lid to cover the complete tank. Secure the latch on the back of the bottom tank to the back of the tank lid. THE TANK LID CANNOT BE ATTACHED PROPERLY IF THE BOTTOM TANK IS ALREADY INSTALLED IN THE MACHINE.
- Check the bottom of the Water Tank and the Formula Tank to make sure each has a red auto-load gasket attached. Make sure the Water Tank and the Formula Tank are seated properly. Depress the x on this gasket to ensure this depresses and release back out. Liquid from the tank should dispense.

- Remove the handle completely and re-attach. Once the handle is re-attached, re-attempt to spray.


If the machine continues to not spray, check the following:


REMOVE THE COLLECTION TANK:
• Make sure the unit is set to water rinse
• Remove the smart mix bottle and fill it with water only
• Place the smart mix bottle into the collection tank reservoir
• Run the unit and try to spray. If the machine sprays, you will be able to see the water level decreasing in the smart mix bottle and you will need to replace the bottom tank. It is possibly warped.

I have a Saeco Armonia Espresso Machine. The water pump was running when the tank ran out of water and when I refilled the tank, it wouldn't start again. I unpugged it and turned everything off overnight....


Common on Armonia...
There is no water in the system, so the pump is pumping air!!
you have to push on the usual button but make sure the hot water button (for tea for ex) on the right side (same as steam opening valve) of the machine is open. This will allow the water to re-flow through the system. Once water is coming out again, close hose, and stop water button. Once hose is closed, and you repush the water button, it will flow again through the coffee hole.
Voila

Automatic pump


well that does sound strange but in theory if you hook up the water hose even up high when the water fills the reservoir it should run out while your vacuuming give it a shot and when you wet vac you have to take the filter out whats the brand well see if we can find you a manuel and are you saying the place where you hook the hose doesnt have a hole to the inside most ive seen are on the bottom

Won't spray. . .nothing happens when pull trigger. . .pump belt is ok. ..


I assume you've changed the flat belt and it's working o.k. So, the next thing to check is the bucket seat. When the bucket is set down into the machine, the bucket valve is opened by the center pin on the receiver in the floor of the machine. You should put clean water into the bucket and install it. Wait a couple of seconds and remove it. Inspect the receiver and see if there is any water in it. If not, check the valve in the bucket and make sure that the rubber seal is in place. Sometimes they come off and stay stuck in the receiver. This will not allow the valve to open. If the seal is stuck in the receiver, remove it and re-install it on the bucket valve and test again.
By the way, if there is no shampoo in the shampoo tank, and the mixture dial is set anywhere but off, the machine will not spray. The pump will suck air through the empty tank and will not pick up water from the main tank.
If there is water in the receiver after you remove the bucket, then the problem is likely in the heater. The heater is located in the center of the handle and you must open the handle by removing the hose storage rack and then the top of the handle. There are two screws behind the hose holder that are at the back/bottom of the handle and are recessed into the handle. Once the handle is open, the heater is obvious. You will find two clear hoses attached and they often become plugged at the connections, just inside the heater. You can clear this with a 1/8" drill bit. Remove the hoses and take the bit in you hand and gently insert and rotate. Once cleared, replace the hoses and reassemble. I hope this helps. Be careful. These machines are a maze of hoses and valves and can be difficult to reassemble. Be very observant whenever taking one apart.
One more thing. I have seen instances where the screws that hold down the hood in the area of the tank have broken through the plastic and will lift enough that the tank will not sit down far enough to allow the valve to open. Check here, too.
I hope this helps.

Pump prime lost


After further examination of the pump I re-installed it in the machine and removed the inlet hose from the mixer valve body and placed the end in a shallow pan of water. I turned the machine on and the pimp picked up the water from the pan and pumped without failure for several minutes as I had the pump output refilling the same pan.
If I take the end of the inlet hose out of the pan for only a couple of seconds, the pump loses prime and will not recover until I remove the vacuum hose from the pump. Upon replacing the vacuum hose the pump primes and begins working.
At that point I suspected an air leak at the base of the water tank or somewhere in the mixer valve assembly. I then took the hose off of the tank fitting in the base and placed the end of the hose in the pan of water. Again, the pump performed without any problem. Therefore, I assume I have an air leak at the base of the tank where the tank connects to the machine.
I will explore this further and provide you with additional info as I make progress

Water Tank


There is a heating element much like a radiator inside the handle unit that is clogged. The water travels from the tank thru the heater and back down to the jets. You'll need to take the heater apart to clean it. You may need to check the hoses to and from the water pump also.
